I was having problems with my hot water heater-- Wernier spoke with me over the phone and got one of his guys to come out to take a look the same day. Everyone was super helpful and quick-- I will certainly call Hernandez Heating and Cooling in the future. Excellent.

    Tech Matt Smith came to perform a routine furnace/water heater/AC inspection. Extremely professional, friendly, personable, and very efficient. Matt suggested additional products but was not pushy about it. Inquired as to whether I had any other plumbing/heating/AC issues and completed his tasks in about 30 minutes.

    Tyler did a wonderful job of remodeling my kitchen including removing a wall and reconfiguring the water lines. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He has done numerous other projects around my home including remodeling our bathroom, moving our washer and dryer in the laundry room and installing a hot water heater. Tyler is kind and courteous and does a great job of cleaning up! I have recommended him to a number of people who have also been very pleased. I have attached some pictures of our kitchen.

    Dan responded to me quickly. He is very knowledgable of the HVAC system. He came to my house on the same day that I reached him. Dan checked, tuned up and turned on my electric central AC, gas heating furnace and gas hot water heater. They hadn't been used for two year when I purchased the house! Thanks Dan for the great and professional job. I do recommend you to use him when you need help.

    Couldn't be happier with the work recently completed by Stephen Cirigliano Plumbing! I recently called Steve regarding a problem that I was having with my hot water tank (turned out to be the pressure reducing valve on the main line). First, he was very prompt, courteous and professional in reaching out to me to learn about the problem that I was having with my hot water tank, and was able to get me scheduled for the next day! He arrived to diagnose the problem exactly when he said he would, and even had the replacement part I needed on hand to do the repair. The work was completed quickly and thoroughly, and he didn't even seem to mind me looking over his shoulder while he worked. Overall Steve was everything that you could ask for in a plumbing professional. My goal was to save money (vs. what the larger companies might charge) while not compromising the quality of work--which I did not. Steve is a Certified Master Plumber, and I'm fortunate that I was able to receive big-time professional quality service at a handyman price. Steve will be my go-to guy for all future plumbing needs!

    We have used Try-County Plumbing for many years (to replace a toilet, install a hot water heater, replace a hose bib, install kitchen and bathroom faucets, repair a water line, snake/camera/unclog sewer line, replace a large portion of exterior sewer line, repair a toilet, and install a new tankless water heater). Through all of these projects, Bob has always explained the issue and given suggestions/options for fixing it. We always appreciate that. He’s always been friendly and professional with us - never pushy and never made us feel pressured to purchase a particular service. Most importantly, we’ve always been happy with his work. That’s why we keep going back to him and why we’ve recommended him to our family and friends. We highly recommend Try-County Plumbing.

    Dave was excellent in explaining all the potential options, whether it was to repair or replace our hot water heater. He took the extra time to vet all solutions, while the others simply pushed replacement and price.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    When is it time to replace a water heater?

    Although regular water heater maintenance and water heater repair may extend the life of your hot water heater, it won’t last forever. Most water heaters have a life expectancy of about 10 years. Many water heaters need to be replaced when they’re 8-12 years old — that’s when they start to show signs of fatal wear, such as leaking around the base of the tank. A water heater should be replaced when it fails to sufficiently heat water for the home; if your heater is operating erratically, check first for a blown fuse or a tripped breaker to make sure an electrical issue isn’t causing the problem. Another time to replace a water heater is when you want to upgrade to either a larger model or a more energy-efficient one.

    Who can fix a water heater?

    When a water heater stops running effectively, it’s best to hire a water heater repair professional to troubleshoot the problem. Whether it’s a plumbing company that offers water heater repair services or a provider specializing in water heater repair and maintenance, most repair companies offer same-day service as well as weekend and after-hours emergency calls. Usually, water heater repair professionals are experts in both electric and gas systems, as well as tank and tankless heaters, and can repair any kind of unit.

    Why is my hot water not working?

    The most common complaint among homeowners is that their hot water isn’t working — and the water heater is generally the culprit. Typically, it isn’t making the water as hot as you’d like it to be. When the water isn’t hot enough — or isn’t hot at all — run through this troubleshooting checklist for basic water heater repair tasks:

    • Make sure the power is connected to the heater, then reset the thermostat.
    • If it’s a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is lit.
    • Raise the temperature setting on the thermostat.

    If these stops don’t lead to hot water, it’s time to either check the heating element in an electric water heater or the burner unit and gas control valve in a gas-powered heater. A water heater repair and maintenance company can handle these repair jobs. However, if your hot water heater is eight years or older, it may be time to replace the water heater instead of repairing it.

    How much do new water heaters cost?

    The cost of a new water heater depends largely on the type and size of the heater. The average national cost for a new water heater installation including a 40- to 50-gallon tank is $350-$780. Most homes don’t need larger tanks, but they are available — for a price. The average difference between a 50-gallon tank and a 75-gallon tank (the next most common size) ranges from $400 to $600. Hundred-gallon tanks are also available, and they can cost double or triple the price of a 50-gallon tank from the same manufacturer. New water heaters tend to be far more energy-efficient, so they can cut energy costs; homeowners may also be eligible for a new water heater rebate from their local utility company.

    Typically, tankless water heaters, which heat water only when you need it, cost more but can save about 25 percent of annual water heating costs, on average. They also lose only 5 percent of their energy compared with a tank unit’s 30 percent energy loss. Note, too, that a water heater with a tank has a life expectancy of 10 years, while tankless units generally last about twice as long.

    The final expense to consider is a possible disposal fee to get rid of the old water heater; some companies include it in the price, while others charge an average of $35-$150.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
